  1. The Most Extreme, Animal Face-Off, Prehistoric Fight Club, the Walking With... series, Primeval, etc, etc.

    Whether it's Animal Planet, National Geographic or Discovery Channel, these channels have educated us for centuries with entertainment the school could would never provide.

    Is Edutainment a good substitute, though, for normal, boring education? Because it seems, I learned more stuff from Edutainment than I did at school.

    What do you think? And what's your favorite Edutainment program? Mine's Animal Face-Off and Prehistoric Fight Club. Such Edutainment programs don't come round very often, sadly.
     
  2. If I'm watching TV, it's most likely either Food Network or Animal Planet. A lot of the shows on snakes and things like that are really the reason that I know what I do about reptiles and exotics since it's an area we don't have much experience in with school.

    I think things like that are an awesome way to learn, but for some reason I'm really paranoid about whether the information is correct or not. So far, Animal Planet hasn't done me wrong. ;3
     
  3. I think hearing a narrator with a smooth voice talk about tigers fucking is an enlightening experience.

  4. How's it going everyone! Sorry for taking so long with all the information, hard to write in between work and family time at home. Infact, I'm actually working on some information now at work. I started on the list of races I've wanted to include, will actually be posting their origins and information today/tomorrow.

    @RiddL Shoot me a PM (Or here if you want) if you want a special island/place for your Australian character. If you don't really mind, feel free to just choose a race and give them that dialect.

  5. I Looooove education television! :D Especially the Science Channel and Discovery. My favorite shows are usually about geology and astronomy. Earth History, planets, etc.

    I don't care so much about people history unless related to biology and evolution. c_____c Social history and whatnot bores me to tears. It's always war this, war that.

    I definitely learned more in watching these shows than I did in school, but that's because I'm OLD now. x____x I've been OUT of school now longer than I was in it!

    I nodded at her and took a step inside. I was the same with Bram when I first met him too. I walk into house noticing that it is clean of course but then I see her husband and I know my hair turns a deeper shade of red.
    Dani:
    I watch him and smile "So that was great."
     
  7. Dani:
    "Really or ar you just saying that to get me to kiss you again?" I ask
     
  8. I wish I had military channel, the only interesting thing in History Channel now is a documentary on WWII that National Geographic already showed.
     
  9. I LURVE MAH HISTOREH CHANNEL
